By law, you must both go up to the location where they will issue a passport and both parents must sign a statement saying it is okay. If you have documentation that shows you are the custodial parent, you can have your child "red flagged" with the government and this way if he were to try to get a passport for your child they would have to notify you and then you can stop it.

In the US the non-custodial parent can leave if they choose, they cannot however take a minor child with them unless a court rules otherwise.

• This depends on your custody agreement, but I'm fairly certain a non-custodial parent needs permission. Just like a custodial parent will need permission depending on what the custody agreement states. I do know, however, that a custodial parent can get a passport without the permission of the non-custodial parent if he/she meets certain requirements. is that parent's name the only one on the birth cirtificate? Does that parent have sole LEGAL custody?

Does a custodial parent have to notify the noncustodial parent when they leave the country with child?

Yes. Minors are required to obtain a passport when leaving the U.S. Both parents have to sign the application for a passport. If the noncustodial parent cannot be present when the application is made he or she must submit a notarized statement of permission. The exception is if the parent requesting the passport has sole legal custody, if that is the case he or she must present the court order of custody. All documents must be original or legal copies of the original with the embossed seal of the court and/or government agency. In the case of 16-17 year olds, they must appear in person at the time of application with the required documentation.

If a custodial parent can take a child out of the country on vacation without telling the non-custodial parent will depend on the court order and the laws in the state they live in.
